Protect Your Rights When You Face DUI Charges
DWI is a matter that should be taken seriously. Even on a first offense, you may face up to a year in jail, pay fines and court fees, lose your driver’s license and have to submit to mandatory alcohol screening.
In these cases, prosecutors often rely on breath and blood tests. With serious consequences at stake, many people wonder if they should have taken the breath test. New York, however, has an implied consent law, which will likely mean losing your license for at least a year if you refuse.
It may seem like a no-win situation, but the facts of each case are different. Attorney Greenwald has an extensive background in anatomy and physiology, giving him the knowledge necessary to spot things that just don’t add up.
For example, the breath testing equipment may have been improperly calibrated or police may have lacked a legal reason to pull you over. If even one thing is wrong, it can destroy the case against you and lead to dropped charges or a finding of “not guilty” at trial.
